The name game scene was pretty fun.

So supposedly, the clue to the theme of the third season was in this episode.

All I could think of was "I put a spell on you" and witches.

With the season coming to a close I guess it's time to kill everybody off. I'm going to miss the head nun- I forget her name at the moment. She was a lot of fun.

I'm guessing that next season has to do with freaks, ala Pepper's speech to Arden in how society views them. Here's hoping we have some freakish carnival roadshow or something along those lines.

Oh yeah, and the irony of going out in an oven... Well played.

I'm god damn plucky, remember?

What a great episode. I am so glad to have it back.

The ending surprised the hell out of me.

The whole cast of this show is so top notch. I hope they bring them back for season 3 too.

I always go to bed at 10, and watch the episode the next day, but last night decided to watch it "live".

Wow!

That was a good and a bad idea. The episode was great, but then I couldn't sleep thinking about the episode

Interesting. There are three episodes left, but only one villain remaining standing (Thredson), and he's currently at a disadvantage. It'll be fun to see what surprises are still in the bag for the rest of the season.

3 episodes? That's a lot. This episode felt like a finale.

The season has been so great that I'm sure they will be able to deliver.

Just one? His son is still on the loose in the present day.

The musical scene was awesome.

I was surprised that they finished up the demonic sister plotline.

So we have aliens, Thredson and Bloodyface still alive.

And I guess that next season is in Rome?

I don't see them going to Rome, at least not with these characters.

I'm not sure that the modern day stuff will be any more than an epilogue, but we'll see.

Doubtful. The name of the show is American Horror Story, not Italian Horror Story, after all.

The dance number was pretty damn great.
They should release a single with Jessica Lange singing.

Agreed. The people who make Glee should take notice...this is how it's done!

That scene definitely took me out of the episode because all I could think of was how Glee-like it was.

I was taken aback by it when I realized they were actually stopping down for a full-on musical number, but it ended up working. I liked how everyone was resisting and then gave in and then all had a good time with it.

A third season of nothing but musical numbers would be horrific.

I'm not going to assume it's finished until the season's over. For all I know, Arden screamed because the devil took over his body then found a way out of the crematorium.
